New York City has a new mayor after eight years. And on his first day he rode the subway to work and called 911 on a brawl he witnessed. After his subway adventure he noted to the public that the theme of his first 100 days in office is GSD: Get Stuff Done. For me the “S” means something else. But you get the gist.
As I have noted previously my word for the year is “joy”. And part of that joy will come through struggles and feelings of accomplishment. Those struggles and accomplishments will come from my own version of “GSD”.
I too am going to give myself 100 days into this New Year to get things done. I’ve got a long list already going from tiny things such as scheduling a new dentist appointment to helping my son finalize his high school choice for September. I’ve got my calendar out (I still like wall calendars) and I’m filling it in with things that need to get done. Some things will be contingent on done things outside of my control such as whether we have yet another covid surge. Other things I just need to get past my own mental barriers.
I need to be my own coach but also learn to accept the help of others along the way. That in itself will be an accomplishment. So I tell myself “Mimi, let’s do it! Let’s get stuff done”!
